Cyber Security: Danger Around The Corner! Cyber-Sec Predictions

Cyber Security: Danger Around The Corner! Cyber-Sec Predictions

Businesses and consumers alike have been affected by the almost daily threats of data breaches and the impact of these have on a continuous basis. Will such threats enable identity fraud, send a business under or even give adversaries further power to conduct ever more dangerous attacks? Michael Sutton, CISO at Zscaler, has crafted his top five predictions for the year ahead and what this will mean for the threat landscape.

 

He discusses:

 

• Nation states ‘offensive offense’ – It’s likely 2017 will see the US and other nations step into a cyber mudslinging contest

• AI will be used for good and evil – Another platform that holds mass quantities of data will be susceptible to savvy criminals in 2017

• Ransomware gets physical – Encrypting data will be replaced with extortion via disabling physical systems

• Data breaches 3.0 – The next wave as criminals seek to alter, not exfiltrate data with corporate espionage in mind

• Cyber insurance disruption – Risk scoring algorithms will need to go far deeper with internal corporate security systems to calculate the likelihood of a breach

 

Offensive Offense – Increasingly, motivations for offensive nation state sponsored attacks have gone into a new realm and have been driven primarily as an effort to undermine the credibility of another government or in some cases influence public sentiment.”

 

Rise of the Machine (Learning) – Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are the current buzz words du jour in the security industry. Machine learning will revolutionise security because humans simply can’t scale in the same way that but machines do and we’re willing to invest in perfecting the neural networks that drive them.”

 

Ransomware gets Physical – Most ransomware to date remains relatively unsophisticated, relying primarily on social engineering as the infection mechanism. Attackers don’t need to pull 0day tricks out of their bag to infect PCs, when signature based defenses are easily evaded and humans remain gullible. What is changing, is the targets that the attackers are going after.”

 

Data Breaches 3.0 – First we had the era of the financial data breach with the likes of Target, Home Depot, Michael’s and Neiman Marcus all suffering massive thefts of debit/credit card data across 2013 and 2014. Healthcare then bore the brunt of the attacks announced in 2015 with Anthem, Premera and Carefirst all acknowledging that millions of records had been stolen. In 2017 we can expect a third data breach phase, with attackers seeking to alter, not exfiltrate data.”

 

Disruption in cyber insurance – The insurance industry is one that’s ripe for disruption. With data breaches becoming the norm, cyber insurance has also become a must have item for large enterprises. Insurance companies are desperate to get in on the game, but they have a big challenge – how do they calculate the likelihood of a breach? Life insurance is easy – plenty of people have lived and died and we have solid data on it.”

The Peterson Group LLC: The Cs in Leadership

Leadership is not without challenges and responsibilities. It is not about taking tasks and passing it to your subordinates.

 

Leaders also come in different levels: There are those who are good and there are also those who are great. It also does not necessarily mean that you have to be widely known to be considered a great leader, although there are those who create enough influence to be recognized by the wider public.

 

Researchers have emphasized on how important leaders are to the organization they work for. Leadership development and consulting firm, The Peterson Group even conducted a study regarding the nature of leaders in their respective fields. According to the result after 30 companies around Jakarta, Indonesia were surveyed and observed, organizations with the highest-quality leaders are 13 times more likely to outperform the competition in a variety of key metrics, including customer satisfaction, employee engagement, and overall financial performance.

 

Moreover, the study also reviews the different C’s which are basically the characteristics for successful leadership:

 

1. Character

 

A lot of people say character builds a person and is responsible for the impression that you will be creating to other people. The way you deal with other people and the actions you choose on every situation may define who you are. Strong characteristics are also the foundation to building success

 

2. Charisma

 

Famous author, John Maxwell once said, “When it comes to charisma, the bottom line is other mindedness. Leaders who think about others and their concerns before thinking of themselves exhibit charisma”. It is about making people feel good about themselves instead of having complaints on how concerned you are about yourself.

 

3. Commitment

 

You can never achieve something if you only will for it but do nothing. Commitment separates the dreamers from the doers and leaders are sure to be the latter.

 

4. Communication

 

Good communication skill is needed for every endeavor. It is never on what you say but on how you say it. Some individuals fail in this regard by thinking that it is enough that people see them as intelligent, saying whatever they want to say. Good communication skills also include consideration towards the person receiving the message.

 

5. Competence

 

Who would ever accept the leader who cannot stand on what he had said. Maxwell also emphasized, “Competence goes beyond words. It’s the leader’s ability to say it, plan it, and do it in such a way that others know that you know how- and know that they want to follow you”.
